Rocky Mountaineer welcomed Network Ten’s The Living Room hosts, Chris Brown and Miguel Maestre, back to Canada to film a second series of travel segments for the TV Week Logie winning lifestyle television show.
Chris, who recently returned from the South African jungle where he was hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, and Miguel experienced the world-renowned, luxurious train journey from Rocky Mountain townships such as Banff to the iconic cities of Whistler, Vancouver and Seattle.
The entertaining duo will showcase to viewers the incredible adventures on board Rocky Mountaineer and the exciting destinations the train visits. On their journey, Chris and Miguel faced a variety of exciting challenges, from bobsledding in lycra to basic training, Royal Canadian Mounted Police style.
The pair also learnt the secrets of cooking a distinctly Canadian summer dish bison steaks, got up close and personal with the iconic and graceful king of the ocean – the orca, and explored the vibrant Pike Place Fish Market in the heart of Seattle.
Fellow Rocky Mountaineer guests were entertained by the humorous pair getting up to their usual antics, as they travelled along awe-inspiring scenery, breathtaking mountains and majestic wildlife – providing the perfect backdrop for a delectable culinary experience and engaging storytelling on board the train.
With these special segments broadcasting on selected Friday nights throughout April, June and July, viewers of The Living Room will see celebrity chef Miguel take food lovers on a gourmet journey showcasing local specialties including Pacific salmon and tasty Nanaimo Bars in the kitchen, with Chris playing his part as train host for the guests.
“The highlights of the trip were the great products that we cooked with – the beef, salmon and local treats, as well as cooking with Jean-Pierre Guerin, the Executive Chef on Rocky Mountaineer,” Miguel said. “Having a full restaurant kitchen on a train, 5 star service and fine dining cuisine – wow!”
The Living Room’s Rocky Mountaineer travel segments will air on Friday 1st and 8th of April, Friday 17th June, and Friday 8th July 7.30pm on TEN.
